Description: Our restaurant is situated in the heart of Livigno, along the pedestrian area. The design is an interesting mix between country style, in the bar, and modernity,in the restaurant. Here, thanks to wide glass-walls, you can admire the beauties of Livigno sourrounded by a unique atmosphere and, in the meanwhile, you can taste the delicious cuisine by our chefs Stefania and Walter. All our dishes, from the local specialities, meat and fish, to our pizzas, are prepared with high quality ingredients and are cooked at the moment to offer you a very special holiday experience. Our staff will be glad to have you as our guests! We are waiting for you!

Having eaten at ca'noa, on the recommendation from a write up in the daily Telegraph, my advice would be to totally ignore the journalists comments and avoid this restaurant unless you are looking to eat "only" pizza.

The food certainly does not resemble homemade cuisine, most of which was in edible. We started with the lardo appetiser with porcini mushrooms, these were tinned, and awful, and the lardo was not great. Next pizza,which was good nice and thin base. Followed by stinko & polenta and porcini mushrooms, the pork was very dry, which is unusual as normally cooked in the sauce, and it must have been cooked a number of times, polenta tasteless, and mushrooms tinned with no flavour. Veal scallopini with wine wine sauce, had not been panned fried but roasted some time ago, and was not the correct cut of meat to serve as a scallopini, again not appetising at all, and we left most of our main dishes.

The bill came to 95euro, for a meal we barely ate apart for the pizza, so money not well spent!

So I would definitely not recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a authentic tasty Italian meal.

Stayed near Canoa so ate there regularly , The Pizzas were really good with the service being excellent. If anything maybe a little overpriced.

You can't be wrong here with pizza. Very good with normal price. And one good thing - the opening time is much better then other restaurants in Livigno (usually closed over the day ...).
Recommend.

Good food, good service. Charming building, but not as charming inside. A bit loud acoustics. And large room.

This is my "find" of the trip to Livigno. It looks unassuming, but the pizzas are amazing, the house wine is excellent, but make sure you leave room for desert!
The most striking thing is the value - this felt cheaper than anywhere else, and was perhaps the dinner I enjoyed most.
